Power outage during rainfall is becoming a common phenomenon in Bhopal. Power supply was snapped in many parts even during rainfall on Monday evening. People were sweating as there was no power. What is a matter of concern is this that power outages are not of short time rather they last for hours, leaving people high and dry. It was even on Sunday night that disruption in power supply for hours left people red faced. Meanwhile, helpline employees of power company are having a harrowing time as the helpline numbers are bombarded with complaints of power supply disruptions.
More than this, it is linemen who are on toes to rectify the loopholes in power supply.

The main reason for power supply disruption is this that when it rains along with gusty winds, tree branches fell down on power supply line, affecting the power supply in various areas.
On Monday evening, power supply was snapped in parts of MP Nagar, Shivaji Nagar, Gautam Nagar, Banganga area, Professors Colony, Nishatpura, Cholla area etc. As power outages remained for hours hence people were having grudges against the delay in redressal of power complaints.
